Hocus pocus Atlantis! Atlantis Adventures has combined the
undersea wonders of Waikiki’s marine world with Hawaii’s premier
magic show to produce an entertainment experience available nowhere
else in the islands.
According to Ronald Williams, president and CEO of Atlantis
Adventures, the new “Magic Submarine Combo” package has multilevel
appeal. “It combines a great underwater adventure during the day
and fabulous entertainment in the evening at a very attractive
price,” Williams notes. Guests can save up to $20 by booking the
combined package over selecting the two activities separately.
The “Magic Submarine Combo” highlights Oahu’s only sub tour
experience off Waikiki Beach. The 90-minute Atlantis trek begins
with a scenic cruise to the dive site marked by a panoramic view of
the Waikiki shoreline and Diamond Head Crater.
At the site, adventure lovers step inside the world’s most
technologically advanced passenger submarine, featuring a spacious,
air-conditioned cabin with large viewports for each seat. As the
sub descends to a depth of 125 feet, a beautiful underwater world
emerges - one that Atlantis helped reinvigorate with artificial
reefs that have substantially enhanced the growth of fish, coral
and other marine life.
“Today, our passengers see a vibrant ecosystem at work
supporting all kinds of tropical fish and marine life up close,”
says Williams. Endless schools of tropical fish frolic in an exotic
habitat, with turtles, stingrays and reef sharks making frequent
appearances. An onboard tour guide entertains and informs about
Back on shore, guests are treated to the Magic of Polynesia
dinner show at the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel. In the comfort of the
dinner theater setting, master illusionist John Hirokawa performs
his fast-paced, high-energy show that literally explodes off the
stage at times. Dance, music and Polynesian chants are showcased
throughout the performance.
Topping off this unique entertainment extravaganza are two
dining options. Priced at $204 per person, the six-course Deluxe
Dinner Show features sit-down service highlighted by a tasty steak
and lobster combo. The Buffet Dinner Show features salmon and
chicken for $148. Both options include beverages and dessert at the
magic show, plus Atlantis dive admission.
“We think the package is a winner,” Williams comments. “Both our
submarine tour and the magic show offer everything people want in
Hawaii. They’re affordable, exciting, fascinating and show what
makes being in Hawaii so incredibly special.”
